TONY'S 10 METRE BAND REPORT - December 11, 2014

00:48 Fernando Luiz de Souza 0 Comments







Two apologies this week. First I didn’t work any stations at all, I’ve been too busy to even turn the radio on. Second there was another data loss so that there is nothing for Saturday.

Conditions were good though with 6 or more contacts needed to get into the lists.

HC2RAT/8 et al expedition (Ecuador) did well with W1AW prominent (yet again). But it is difficult to pick out special stations amongst so many. But A63DI (Dalma Island AbuDhabi) has got to be special. I never think of the middle east as having islands, but there you go!
Steven, 2E0NHR , has thoughts that we would all echo,
“Looking forward to ARRL 10m contest this weekend, hope there’s no other plans for me....”

I can’t think what you mean!!

He worked 9H5GG/P 5/5, YU100GER 5/9 and U2IX 5/9 on Friday. Saturday OH9SCL 5/9 (Santa Claus?) and Tuesday W1AW/1 5/9 (Maine) and EA5GVL 5/9.

No prizes, but what do you think would be the best amateur radio call for Santa Claus? Spoofy ones and possibly legit ones? Obviously Claus1 is not a possible. Now think hard.
 
Arie, 9W2VVH , steps back into the frame. “Hi Tony. Salam sejahtera dari Malaysia. Just install the Digimode JT65 software and wkd my 1st JT65 qso with DG1HLM at 1003utc. Later with JA3IVV 2355utc. Tnx to Rahman 9W2ORB and Hamid 9M2TPT for introducing this JT65 to me.” 

Wednesday worked JH2JUG, JA3GAK, JA3EP, JA2INP, JA1VRY, JA7ZF, JA4GVA, JH6FZN, JA2ZS, JA6ADA, JA3MAT, JA3BJZ, JA3BLK, 7J1BBC, JA9CM, VK2AAF, VK5MTM, DJ1TU, UA6XES, IK5FKF,OK2JNB, RZ3DIE, OH7NW, RA4FDQ & BG7JD.
“Today propagation on digimode JT65 consider good all day. I managed to work 25 stns mostly form JA. Others from VK, DL, UA, I, OK, OH & BY. Also a special report, I just wkd 2 local stn on digimode JT65 on 10m (28.076MHz). My 1st local contact with Zainal 9W2FLV around 1339utc and 2nd contact with Rahman 9W2ORB 1346utc. And more, also Namie, 9M2MDX Lets digimode! hi hi.” 
 
Very good, I have worked JT65 but mostly I’m on PSK modes.

Sun: Solar activity has been low for days. The sunspot most likely to break the quiet is AR2230. Not only is the sunspot growing rapidly, but also it has an unstable 'beta-gamma' magnetic field that harbours energy for M-class solar flares. NOAA forecasters estimate a 20% chance of such an explosion on Dec 10 th. (spaceweather.com)
 
And so Arsenal crash again to the mighty Potters (Stoke City). 4 – 0 up just before halftime till the rubbish ref disallowed a perfectly good goal. Then they came back at us but we stood the test and ran out 3 – 2 winners. Arsen Wenger never left his seat. Crystal Palace this weekend away. I would go but have to pick up the younger daughter from Heathrow airport, home from Shanghai for Xmas.
